Gucci x MLB Sets a New Stage for Blended Luxury
Featuring varsity jackets, oversized jackets, caps and more.
When you think about luxury goods, sports is not always the first thing to come to mind. But Gucci’s Alessandro Michele is expanding the brand’s maximalist gaze that is no stranger to blending everything in sight. As such, Gucci is gearing up to release its official collaboration with Major League Baseball.
Since the Italian house’s Fall/Winter 2018 runway show, there have been hints at a forthcoming collaboration showcased by New York Yankees-inspired houndstooth coats, hats, beanies and more. Although the Yankees are a presumed favorite of Michele due to him frequently donning the baseball cap, runway show pieces have also referenced teams like the San Francisco Giants and more.

The official Gucci x MLB collection is set to release Friday, April 22 on Gucci’s online experimental concert space, Vault.
